RENEW - RECHARGE - REIGNITE RETREAT
Our first day begins with registration, breakfast, introductions, and retreat overview. After the day’s sessions, we’ll enjoy a fun wrap-up activity!
Session 1: Stop the Shame—Own Your Burnout
We tell ourselves lies everyday. Lies about what should have happened, what we could have done, and how we should feel now. The truth is, one thing is stopping you from moving through and past the burnout: SHAME. In this session, all that will change. By beginning where you are at this moment, you will learn ways to stop the shame and live your truth as an educator and as a human being. Amber will share with you the exact moment she decided she had to make the decision to live her truth and stop the shame herself.
Session 2: The Science of Happiness
For too long, conventional wisdom has told us that success fuels happiness. That’s all wrong: Happiness fuels success! During this session, you’ll assess your current happiness levels. And then you’ll learn how to start “resetting” your brain toward positive to increase engagement, creativity, motivation, energy, resilience, and productivity in your life. Plus, you’ll get some helpful self-care tips—and there just might be a dance party, too!
Session 3: Understand Your Teacher Brand
What is a brand? In this session, Amber will lead you through the steps to: 1) Understanding what personal and teacher branding IS; and 2) How you can either create or recreate your teacher brand starting right NOW. Expect a transformation—you won’t leave this session the same person you were at the beginning of it!
Session 4: Happiness Habits, Part 1
Did you know that positive brains simply function better? Everything from productivity to task accuracy is improved when you’re working from a positive mindset. During this session (and continued in session 5), you’ll learn 5 key steps that anyone can take to increase their happiness levels, overcome their stresses, and experience a shift in both mindset and behavior. Meditation and exercise are two of these habits—so come ready to get mindful and maybe even get a little physical!
RENEW - RECHARGE - REIGNITE RETREAT
June 10 + 11, 2019 - Nashville, IN
Brown County Inn
51 State Road 46 East Nashville, IN 47448
Retreat day two kicks off with your choice of a run with Kim, yoga with Amber—or sleeping in! After breakfast, we’ll do a short journaling activity in preparation for the day’s sessions.
Session 5: Happiness Habits, Part 2
This session keeps the happy going! You’ll learn the remaining happiness habits shared in session 4, get your gratitude on with tips for keeping a gratitude journal, and find out why conscious kindness is so important (plus, get ideas for practicing random acts of kindness). You’ll walk away ready to start creating a more positive culture in your school!
Session 6: Growth Mindset—for Teachers and Students
Research has shown that a growth mindset can foster grit, determination, and work ethic within students—and teachers! During this session, you’ll learn how to start shifting your beliefs, find the power of learning by doing, and discover the value in productive struggle. And Kim will take you on a deep dive into adjusting your own fixed mindset with a fun activity.
Session 7: Open Up Your Possibilities—and Never Settle
As the retreat draws to a close, Amber will set you up for success after you leave this physical location and move on with your career and life. You’ll be exposed to practices that will help you to expand your belief in what is possible for yourself and how to keep yourself in check, so you will NEVER SETTLE for the burned-out, unhappy, exhausted human that you were at the beginning of this retreat.
